Earl Grey Hot Chocolate Recipe

It’s so cold outside! We are having some really cold weather. This hot chocolate is flavored with Earl Gray tea. The tea gives it more depth of flavor, and scent of bergamot. I can’t think of a more comforting way to warm up at home.
Earl Grey tea is often used to infuse chocolate truffles with citrus fragrance and flavor. Why not use a similar technique to make tea-infused hot chocolate?

1½ cups whole milk
2 teaspoons Earl Grey Tea
1 ounce bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 tablespoon sugar or more to taste

PREP: 5 mins
COOK: 1 min

Bring milk just to a boil in a saucepan. Add the tea, turn off the heat (but keep the pan on the warm burner), cover and let stand to steep for 3 minutes. Whisk in the chocolate and sugar until melted and dissolved. Pour through a fine strainer and into a mug and serve immediately. *You can serve topped with whipped cream.

Loose tea, which is generally of a higher quality than tea found in tea bags, will give you the tastiest hot chocolate blend.
Bergamot is a fragrant orange and the essential oils in the rind are used in perfumery and for culinary.

Drink and enjoy! Get cozy!
